A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Avalon, New Jersey
Welcome to Avalon ...
Although we found mention of Avalon during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Avalon was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Avalon was located in Cape May County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Avalon to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Avalon - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Avalon, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Avalon might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Avalon would be found within the (609) area code.
